Gawai Dayak

Every year on June 1, the Dayaks of Sarawak will celebrate Gawai Dayak to give thanks to the gods after the rice harvesting season is over. And when all the paddy stalks have been threshed and the fresh grains have been neatly stored. “Gawai” means festival and “Dayak” is a collective name for the indigenous people of Sarawak.
